Artistic Director's Message

Welcome to the Tex*Rep web page!

I hope you will notice that as much care has gone into these pages as goes into the quality of our productions. We hope you will enjoy looking back at our previous seasons, and hope that the information on upcoming shows will excite you as much as ourselves.

It is my greatest hope that you will get excited enough to become a part of Tex*Rep. Whether as an audience member, or as an active participant in our organization (onstage, backstage – c’mon down, there’s something for everyone!!!) we really want everyone to become a part of the TexRep experience.

Our goal is to bring you the highest quality theatre you will find in this area – or ANYWHERE else, for that matter. Please do not hesitate to contact us with any ideas that will help Tex*Rep serve you and the community!
